Palehound
Palehound
Since forming in 2014, Palehound — fronted by singer / songwriter Ellen Kempner – has taken their plainspoken, technique-heavy indie rock from the basements of Boston to festivals around the world.
The band’s critically acclaimed 2015 debut album, Dry Food, landed them on numerous “Best Of 2015” lists with NPR, VICE’s Noisey, Paste Magazine, The Observer, Consequence Of Sound, The Boston Globe, The Austin Chronicle + many more. Since then the band has toured virtually non-stop, headlining club tours in both the US and the UK, as well as going out with Torres, Bully, Mitski, PWRBTTM and a variety of other bands, developing a ferocious live set in the process.

The band’s sophomore album, A Place I'll Always Go, is out June 16, 2017 on Polyvinyl Record Company.
Leapling
Leapling, the brainchild of Brooklyn-based songwriter Dan Arnes, is back in Suspended Animation, the band’s sophomore full length album. The band’s follow up to last year’s Vacant Page finds the collective moving in new directions of pop brilliance. Written while the band’s line-up was transitioning, Arnes stripped down the band’s art-pop exploration and found himself immersed in a bright new power-pop sound. The record is layered, nuanced, and full of musical deviation, but the results are coherent and evocative.

Suspended Animation is direct opposition to the band’s previous work, and the Leapling you thought you knew has been forever changed. Pushing themselves into new sonic bliss, the record bursts with swift arrangements and straight-forward yet deeply layered pop songs. Joined by Alejandro Salazar Dyer (drums), the quartet slimmed down to a trio resulting in a new energy and an earnest rawness that comes from a more minimalist approach. Inspired by a wide range of artists from the power-pop of Big Star and The Kinks, the soul of Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson, the oddball genius of Ween and Jim O’Rourke, and the timelessness of the Mowtown and Philly soul sound, Leapling have pulled their influences together, with no ideas left unturned. Bold and vibrant, Suspended Animation is an immediate record, eleven eclectic power-pop hits for these ever fleeting times.
